Hello fellow wooden boat builders!
I have a simple question about installing the rowlock sockets on the edge of a wooden rowboat.
I have some Perko rowlock hardware that looks well made, but they don't include any installation instructions.
Once the mounting holes are drilled in the wood for the sockets is it traditional to epoxy the metal rowlock sockets in place permanently or should I first paint the inside of the wooden hole and mount the socket in the hole afterwards?
I suspect the former would be stronger, but the latter easier to remove in the future if ever need be.
Advise would be appreciated from ye old salts!

While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
